Diving computers are an essential safety and monitoring tool. They help you keep track of all your equipment, as well as navigate your diving area. They keep track of time so that you can concentrate on your dive.
Information gauges are a series of separate gauges built into one base and attached to the BCD. They have a gauge to monitor the pressure in the air tank, and another to monitor depth. They also have a compass for navigation purposes.
Dive computers are usually worn around the wrist. They keep track of depth and allowable time at the bottom. They perform these functions on an average of 200 times per second. They also come with a built-in microprocessor programmed with your dive plan.
